Over the last few days I have seen several quotes from Frances Hodgson Burnett’s book “The Secret Garden”, published in 1911. There must be a reason this is coming into my awareness! This quote in particular resonated with me… and there are many many more! “Sometimes since I've been in the garden I've looked… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Magic is all around us
I love how author Neil Gaiman thinks. This quote resonated so strongly with me. We have infinite possibility within us... and infinite worlds. And during this time of lockdown (for many of us), we may find ourselves connecting with those inner worlds in ways we haven't before.
I am so inspired today by these words from Lao Tzu: "When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be." During this time of slower living — and living with restrictions, and potentially with loss, fear, anxiety, frustration and other emotions — many are finding new rhythms as they explore… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Finding a new rhythm
This quote from Joseph Cook came up in my FB memories feed this morning, from five years ago. Different times indeed! When I first read it, I experienced it as a reminder and an awareness "hint" or prompt, i.e. to not confuse being busy with being focused or productive. Why?

And so it… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: What seeds are you planting?
This quote has been attributed to many people including Warren Buffett and Bruce Lee. I don’t know who originally said it and the quote-checker site quoteinvestigate was unable to find a clear attribution, so let’s credit it to that well-known author "Anonymous". Whoever said it, these words are a powerful reminder to look within when… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: react vs. respond
My Moonday Musings this month focus on the theme of mindfulness, each week sharing words of wisdom from mindful masters. Why? Perhaps it's because being mindful and staying present can be somewhat of a challenge for me at times, and I'm assuming that I am not alone in that aspect. When out of balance or… Continue reading MoonDayMusings: Six Nails for Mindfulness
As we start the new year, and new decade, it seemed appropriate to focus on a single theme in this first month — mindfulness — which I will explore each week, guided by words from various teachers. So . . . mindfulness. An interesting concept, with multi-layered perspectives. But what is mindfulness? One could say… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Recognizing Happiness
